Patience (Lock Design)


Patience (Lock Design) is inspired by the hope and perseverance equally.

Life is not fair, but it is also unpredictable. While life can be very tough, it never hurts to have hope and persevere. Doing your best has the potential to pay off. But also, if you survive long enough, the natural constant of change might alter the situation to be in your favour.

The Arabic calligraphy writing "الصبر مفتاح الفرج" was literally translated into "Patience is the key to relief." Meaning that the end of any problem would come if you were patient enough. Because either the problem ends, or you grow stronger. The choice of an open lock is based on its symbolism of being stuck and restrained. 

Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
